RealNetworks will slash its song and album prices in half Tuesday in an attempt to lure music fans to buy its music downloads, which play on a slew of portable music players, including Apple iPods.
In sum, the internet actually brings people of different political views together. The average liberal may spend her morning with her liberal husband and liberal kids; her afternoon with her liberal coworkers; her commute surrounded by liberal bumper stickers; her evening with her liberal yoga classmates. When she comes home and peruses a few conservative comments on cnn.com or gets a Facebook link from her Republican high school acquaintance, this may be her highest conservative exposure of the day. I probably never encounter white nationalists in my favorite coffee shop in Brooklyn. But VikingMaiden88 and I both frequent the New York Times site.
In one of the FTC’s biggest fines ever levied against a company, Sony Music agreed in 2008 to pay $1 million to settle allegations that it knowingly collected and disclosed personal information of as many as 30,000 children under the age of 13.

Hulin began to share pieces of the novel’s nearly 200 pages on @heyharryheymatilda in a few weeks ago, and plans to roll the story out over the next nine months—a period that roughly follows the timeline of her story.

This idea led the team to raise over $410,000 via a grassroots Kickstarter campaign. That opened the doors for angel investors who pumped in over $3.3 million dollars into the phone’s development. Based out of the innovative New Lab in Brooklyn, NY, Tang and Hollier are still shocked about its global appeal.
Many of these executives have publicly denounced the administration’s positions on policies such as immigration and climate change in recent months.
Granted, the Civic is a lightweight car with a small engine and a lot of the improvement in basjoos’ fuel economy can be attributed to his hypermiler driving style.

And this inevitable betrayal is an important reason not to throw away your books. The web may be king, our emperor may be Google, but books (and they aren’t Googleable quite yet) provide an alternative way of perceiving reality. Their subversive potential has always been entirely evident to the powerful. Records of the past make us see the future in a different – and sometimes dangerous – light.
